Genuine all Ford-Steel model A light duty truck finished here at the

Our Big Boy's Garage is proud to present this 1931 Ford Model A Tow Truck with Vintage Gilmore Gas Graphics. It's one model from a matched pair of beautifully restored antique service station trucks affectionately known around the 'Garage as "The Gilmore Twins". Each of these handsome prime movers is a genuine stock all Ford-Steel Model A light duty truck appearing just as it did when serving a route of Gilmore gas stations in the early 1930's. The other half of the set is a 1930 Ford Model A Mini Tanker Truck, which can be found here: 1930 Ford Model A "Gilmore" Mini Tanker TruckBoth Model A Light Duty Service Trucks were just restored at the Big Boy's Garage,sharing the same paint and graphics scheme, rendering a truly unique set of classic Ford Model A Service Trucks!The 1931 "Wrecker" Tow Truck is outfitted with a cast iron and steel Weaver 2-ton manual crank locking winch. This was as no-frills as they came, and they were chosen by many recovery companies over fancier yet more expensive PTO driven winches. Remember, this was the second year into the Great Depression of the 1930's. Businesses spared every penny they had and labor was dirt cheap. Some destitute folks just worked for a hot meal. This relic is an example of how Americans coped with the depression's hardships by using genuine "elbow-grease" in their daily work. You won't find another Ford Model A Service Station Tow Truck so nicely restored anytime soon.Youtube video available upon request.
